. gallup, rasmussen and other major polls show a downward trajectory for the obama administration across every major democratic group. so why is this happening? look, it's true that president obama won the election because people wanted a change from bush policies. that's fair. but for many independent voters, that meant they wanted smarter economic policies. instead, what they got is huge deficits, high taxes, a ballooning federal government and, by the way, a weak and truculent foreign policy. hk, when we can't even convince scotland to do the right thing with the lockerbie bomber, you know we have lost ground. some have suggested that obama is in trouble because he has been too much influenced by the liberals in washington. but news flash, obama is a liberal. he is obsessed with climate change. he adores socialized medicine. he thinks taxes should be higher. he thinks apologizing equals leadership. for america, in other words, he is a typical ivy league liberal from the 1980s trying to refight all the old battles that ronald reagan decisively won a quarter century ago. in the end, his
